Happy Monday Lovelies!
I hope your week is off to a fabulous start!
I mentioned last week that I had made this cake and I am so excited to share it with you, so I am going to get right into it.
I saw this recipe on Pinterest a long time ago and I thought it looked so intriguing! You make up a cake batter, pour it into a pan, and it separates into 3 different layers while cooking. The bottom layer is like a dense cake, the middle is a creamy custard and the top layer is a fluffy, meringue like, cake.
I was hesitant just because Pinterest is known to have some wacky recipes that don’t turn out, so I was glad when I saw that The White on Rice Couple posted a version of the recipe on their site. I modified the recipe from a plain vanilla cake to a sweet and salty Salted Caramel version!
This cake is quite easy to make and it looks very impressive when it is done.
The only thing I was concerned with was the way the “batter” ( I use that term loosely because it’s so runny) looks before you bake it. The last step before baking is “folding” the egg whites into the runny batter, which is basically an impossible task. They will just keep floating to the top, but that is the way you want it to be.
This is the cake batter in the pan before it is baked:
All the egg whites are at the top and it looks kinda lumpy because unless you totally deflate the egg whites, it will not get smooth.
Here it is once it has been baked:
Still kinda lumpy looking, mine cracked a bit but it turned out perfectly golden brown, this is how you want it to look. It will be quite jiggly in the center but that is because the inside is still custard like.
Then you want to let it cool COMPLETELY. Do not try to cut it before it is cooled or it will ooze and be a big mess. Once its cool it slices really nicely into squares.
And then you can see the pretty layers
It gets even more delectable when you top it with some delicious caramel sauce and add a sprinkle of flaky salt.
Make this for your loved ones today! Unless you don’t want a bunch of people over at your house, scraping away at your 8×8. If that’s how you feel, don’t bother. Actually scratch that, make the cake and just don’t tell!
